50 years ago. On NSB, the last break with Pig and Jer jamming is pure sweetness. Shines right thru the muddy aud.
Tho not perfect listening, this is a must listen show.

This is my era of the GD - first saw them in 1970 - and I can't help but favor it. Great to hear Pig. The recording equipment must have been primitive, since it was the Stone Age.

Playing is very hot, but the mix is weird and the quality is off-and-on.

According to Dan Healy's recollection, he told me that this show never happened.

It's a laugh that below "Little Nemo"says "to check the notes" instead of listening to the show when he criticizes another reviwer . He was wrong. This is a patched together source of an epic, yet poorly recorded show. If a vault SBD surfaces this would be considered on of the greats from that great year!
The Dead played magical shows is Hawaii!
This was a vacation. They weren't playing Hawaii as a tour. They had friends there, such as Quicksilver, who had a studio that Dan Healy built because he was working with QMS then. . Santana would rehearse and also recorded there. The studio was built into an old WWII bunker on Oahu. Quicksilver was around playing at the Diamond Head Festival at the time. This was off-time for the band. Damned fine show too! Good weed, good friends, and the "Good Ol' Grateful Dead" with Gary Duncan of Quicksilver. Nice show other than the recording.

3 Easy Winds Not One Recorded Right :..->(
I'm passing on this one...The Dead played Great, but the poor recording quality the bad mix and the snare drum buzz makes it too distracting to listen to. 3 Easy Winds and not one recorded right. It's a shame. The Dead Play great, but the horrible sound quality makes this one for hard core sycophants.
The recording ruined a great show. This show is a great example of what not to do when you record a show.
Unfortunately, some of the reviews below didn't look at the notes carefully or they would have noticed that only the beginning has crappy AUD sound. Then it switches to a crystal clear SBD. However, the mix is strange (not by Bear or Bob, I'm sure) and Bobby and Phil are alternatively high in the mix, with Jerry backgrounded much of the time. However, this gives a person interested in their playing a chance to focus on them - and you can hear everything, sharp as can be. Check out the highlights here, Easy Wind (switches from AUD to SBD here), and Good Lovin' jam. The drummers are razor-sharp, and Bobby seems to be leading the jam... or is it because he's featured in the mix? Anyone who wants to learn to play the Easy Wind bass line, this is the best recording to listen to, bar none.
Apart from the fascinating historical document, this was a high-energy night! The boys are obviously feeling good, and there seems to be less of the cannabis fog that obscured them on many nights in 1970. They are alert, focused, and on!

Hawaiian Vacation Show
This is a good example of the Dead pulling off an inspired show at an obscure venue. The New Speedway and Good Lovin' are among their best ever versions, and even Me and My Uncle is inspired. The Dead are clearly enjoying their Hawaiian vacation! Too bad the whole show isn't on SBD even though the audience portions reveal a very enthusiastic crowd clearly getting off on the Dead.

Gotta love the early days.
Wahoo1, try Audio Hijack Pro. You can do all kindsa stuff, inlcuding eq the high ends with a 31 band eq...
Add Fission (also from Rogue Amoeba) and you can split and merge tracks easily. Awesopme combo for recording streams.
The sound is kinda rough; Deadbase discusses this in its ratings: you have to rate the sound according to the year it was recorded. You can't expect a 70 show to sound anything like an 89... if we did, there would never be a highly rated early show.
4 stars for the sweetness and totally interesting nature of this show.

This is the find of the century so far for me. What an AMAZING sounding bootleg. The only thing I have that is similar to this for flaming hot grunge is the equally great show from Merced that same year. Too bad there isn't an Other One or NFA but the Easy Wind makes up for it.
Who gives a rats butt about the soundboard? Thumbs up to the dude below who characterized the sound as "dank." It is dank. But sometimes you get shown the light in the dankest of places ...

sound is just alittle too static-ed
still kinda fun
August 9, 2005 Subject:
not too shabby
sound is not outstanding but the performance more than makes up for it. the repeat tracks are different mixes of the tracks if you want to compare the sbd vs the aud versions... thanks for the matrix!

Maybe worst I've run across here, almost unlistendable, perhaps should be one of the last things you download here, at least in terms of the 50 or so I've grabbed. Too bad, nice set list and some jammin', but the drums are a little tap in the background, and ugly mix overall.

My deadbase has this show ending with lovelight. Is it possible that this easywind>unclejohn>easy wind is importated from a differnt show? thoughts? The deadbase also notes the nobody's jam that is tucked into new speedway.
four stars for the nobady's jam.
sound quality B-

the sound sucks
Hey tenebaum, before you give a show 5 stars, try listening to it. The sound of this show is awful and I rely on reviews to select shows for downloading.

This is my favorite "Easy WInd"; Phil drives it down hard! Check it! New Speedway is pretty dank, too!
